A loose concept album, it’s both an intense expose and a roughneck tribute to the hip-hop lifestyle that broke new ground by merging the grimy lyrical sensibility and beats of East Coast rap with the funk-influenced subsonic bass grooves of the West Coast producers of the time. The track “Jeep Ass Niguh” was a major hit and a quintessential cruising song of the summer of 1993. It would later appear reworked as “Born to Roll” on some versions of the release (and later featured on the follow up, Sittin' On Chrome), garnering the group a top 25 single on the Hot 100. Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, this reissue features vinyl cut under the supervision of Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Madlib) at Elysian Masters.
